Do I need to meet with counselors in the General Counseling office if I meet with a counselor in EOPS?

No. As an EOPS student you are required to meet with an EOPS counselor two times each semester. The EOPS counselor will provide you with a one semester education plan and will assist in directing you towards your career and transfer goals with a completed six semester plan.                                                                                                                                       

Can I lose my admission status to EOPS once I’m in the program?

Yes. You must maintain a good standing in the program by following program requirements for counselor contact and progress monitoring. If you do not, you will be put on probation for the next semester. The counselors will work with you to get back in good standing.
